Reviews

"If you want to understand the economic events of the last half century, you should read. . . Robert Samuelson's The Great Inflation and Its Aftermath --U.S News & World Report

"Barack Obama . . . should read The Great Inflation and Its Aftermath, [a] timely history of how good political intentions stoked an inflationary hell in the 1970s--and how only bold, painful action smothered the flames."--James Pressley, Bloomberg

"Samuelson's clear-eyed focus on the rise and fall of inflation remains relevant today."--USA Today

"[Samuelson preaches] old-fashioned virtue on a macroeconomic scale: don't promise more than you can deliver; weigh the unintended consequences of your actions; beware hucksters bearing easy fixes."--Noam Scheiber, New York Times Book Review

"Economics can be fun! Samuelson has a knack for making obscure topics interesting."--Rocky Mountain News
